The Diamond Process : How to Fix Your Organization and Effectively Lead People
Good leadership is about more than inspiring people. Effective leadership stands on two pillars: excellent people and efficient processes. Through well-tested models and a series of structured metrics, The Diamond Process will help you identify weak points in your work flow so that you can retroactively fix your organization and make it more efficient. Using the Diamond Process Model, you'll learn how to; IDENTIFY and REFINE your organization's key drivers or primary motivations; INTEGRATE resources like people, equipment, and funding with the processes that achieve the key drivers; BALANCE the key drivers, resources, and processes; CREATE new processes for long-term SUCCESS. Authors Mike Diamond and Chris Harding pull on their considerable experience in the corporate and military worlds to share a wholly innovative approach to effective leadership. Whether you are a small business owner or a shift manager, The Diamond Process will help you transform your organization and lead your team more effectively.
